Matilda's Scoundrels - Bow To The Powers
The latest Just Some Punk Songs show aired last Sunday evening and I think it's fair to say it went down well with the chatroom regulars. I think it's also fair to say that the most popular song of the evening was by Hastings folk punk outfit Martha's Scoundrels.
Formed in 2014 they line up with Thomas Quinn (mandolin/vocals), Jason Stirling (acoustic guitar/tin whistle/banjo/vocals), Jens-Peter Jensen (accordion/vocals), Dan Flanagan (guitar), James Baughurst (bass) and Jon Gosling (drums). They released debut ep Beasts In Disguise early in 2015 and have been pretty prolific since with a number of eps, a split with The Barracks and the Crowleys Curse 7" plus new album (out 8th Sept on TNS Records) As The Tide Turns.
You can check out their earlier releases as well as preview the new album over on Bandcamp : https://matildasscoundrels.bandcamp.com

Anyway, back to the song that went down a storm on Sunday's show (you can listen to the show here if you missed it : https://www.mixcloud.com/mick-fletcher/just-some-punk-songs-050917/), this is Bow To The Powers.....
